About the Foundation

Established in 2001 by Ted Lindsay and John Czarnecki

The Ted Lindsay Foundation was established in 2001 by Ted Lindsay and was inspired by the father of a nine-year-old boy with autism, John Czarnecki. The foundation raises funds through our Annual Celebrity Golf Outing, Wine Tasting and Sing Out 4 Kids Events, as well as through sales of autographed sports memorabilia. Since our inception, the Ted Lindsay Foundation has raised over $3,000,000.

Our mission is to support research and educational programs focusing on the cause and management of Autism Spectrum Disorders. We work to raise and dispense funds to new and existing research projects that focus on the cause and treatment of autism. We also provide funding for training programs, educational programs and social services for children with autism.
